Cooking method

  • I will insist over and over again that even the leanest meat can be juicy, tender, aromatic and tasty.
  • No dryness if you control the temperature precisely.
  • No blandness if you marinated the meat well.
  • We cook grilled turkey fillets in two versions:
  • 1) Turkey fillet in creamy honey glaze;
  • 2) Turkey fillet in fried crispy bacon.
  • Serve the BBQ sauce with the fillet - hot and spicy garlic.
  • It should be noted that fillets can be cooked in the same way at home in the oven, airfryer or simply on the grill. Well, there will be no smell of haze, but it will be very tasty whatever one may say.
  • Pickling
  • Here we will use the wet salting method - the meat is syringed with marinade and kept in it for 24-72 hours.
  • 1Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceCut the meat into even pieces. At a minimum, it is desirable to maintain the same thickness.
  • 2Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceIn a separate container, mix all the ingredients for the marinade except for the bay leaf. Heat slightly to completely dissolve the salt. Cool it down.
  • 3Grilled turkey with BBQ saucePlace the fillet in a zip-lock bag. We process the turkey from all sides with a meat syringe right in the bag. We use the whole marinade. Leaked marinade will remain in the bag. Put bay leaves in a bag and close tightly. We send it to the refrigerator for 24-72 hours. During this time, it is advisable to turn the meat several times for better distribution of the marinade.

  • 7Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceBring to a boil and boil over medium heat to a fairly thick consistency.
  • 8Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceWe take out the bay leaf and again interrupt the mixture with a blender. Cool it down. We store in the refrigerator
  • Cooking meat
  • Be sure to remove the meat from the refrigerator 3 hours before cooking for warming.
  • 9Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceDrain the marinade and blot well the surface of the meat with a paper towel. There should be no moisture. Wrap one part of the fillet in bacon, just leave the other. Add bacon and pepper.
  • 10Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceCooking creamy honey glaze. To do this, mix the butter, honey and paprika. Heat until the butter melts. Stir until smooth.
  • 11Grilled turkey with BBQ saucePlace the fillets on the grill and press. We place it on the grill. In the process of frying fillets, not wrapped in bacon, brush with a creamy honey glaze.
  • 12Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceWhen the temperature inside the piece reaches 69C, immediately remove the meat, wrap it in foil and leave it wrapped for 30 minutes to redistribute the juices.
  • 13Grilled turkey with BBQ sauceExpand the foil, cut the turkey into thin slices. Serve with BBQ sauce
  • Grilled turkey with BBQ sauce
  • Here they are - I can't say which one tastes better, I really liked both.
  • I want to draw your attention: exactly 69C for turkey fillets is the most optimal temperature. And mandatory exposure in foil. The cooking process does not stop immediately, the temperature continues to rise. That is why you should be very careful. 71C is already a critical temperature. Above 75 - get a dry bite. This is what McGee claims, and I have verified it many times.
